The Weekend Box Serves Up Buzzworthy Sampling of Marijuana Products

Now that recreational marijuana is legal in Las Vegas, many visitors are making its consumption part of their wild time in Sin City.

A Las Vegas company, The Weekend Box, is making it easy to sample a variety of cannabis products, from pre-rolled joints (what the kids call marijuana cigarettes) to edibles and vaporizer (or “vape”) pens.

There’s also some actual weed, the romantic name for which is “cannabis flower.”

The main psychoactive compound in cannabis is tetrahydrocannabinol, often responsible for relaxation, euphoria, philosophical thinking and Pizza Rock cravings.

We should say up front that we know absolutely nothing about marijuana, so this isn’t a review.

We just find the idea of a “buffet” of cannabis products intriguing, and we suspect many who are considering trying marijuana for the first time will find The Weekend Box a revelation.

The Weekend Box actually arrives in a bag, but the box is the star of the show.

We fully expect to get around to writing this photo caption, whenever, bro.

Inside the box, eight marijuana products are laid out in various compartments.

You can’t take it with you (cannabis isn’t allowed in airports or on planes), so you’d better get started.

Here’s a quick overview of what’s inside: A transdermal patch, two pre-rolled joints, a gram of actual plant (and a pipe), mints, gummies, chocolate bars and a vape cartridge.

For the uninitiated, such a collection of devices and cannabis consumption methods, can be daunting.

The Weekend Box, though, is very user-friendly, including providing information about what each product is, what it does, and how one can avoid a disappointing experience. The Weekend Box also gives an overview of recommendations for visitors: Don’t consume cannabis in a public place, don’t drive while under the influence and don’t take your products with you when it’s time to leave Las Vegas.

Yes, there’s a little reading, but The Weekend Box keeps it to a minimum.

The world of cannabis is a fascinating one.

The basics, from what we can glean, is there are two main kinds of marijuana: Indica and sativa. Indicas tend to mellow people out, sativas are stimulating.

Each product in The Weekend Box has its own way of being consumed, its own dosage and its own set of reactions.

If we were going to dive into The Weekend Box, we’d definitely try the gummies (Cannavative Gummiez) or chocolate (Incredibles Mile High Mint) first.

These cannabis gummies come in five flavors: Grape, lemon-lime, cherry, mango and pineapple.

There are 10 gummies, so it’s perfect for sharing with friends.

Pace yourself, however. Most negative reactions to edibles seem to be the result of improper dosing. It can take an hour for an edible to kick in, so users are often tempted to consume an excessive amount of cannabis before they should.

The good news is no one has ever overdosed on cannabis, according to the brochure in The Weekend Box.

In weed circles, everyone talks about how the effects of “edibles” takes much longer than smoking or vaping. It’s best to try small quantities of edibles to see how your body reacts, then consume additional amounts as needed.

Another great addition to The Weekend Box is its Dixie Mints. They have a low dosage of THC, and also contain Siberian ginseng, ginko, matcha and orange oil to enhance alertness and increase stamina.

Not that there’s anything wrong with our stamina. Which, we realize, is probably what someone with stamina problems would say. Moving on.

These are just the happiest mints, ever.

There’s also a Manna Molecular Science transdermal patch, which gives a time-released dose of cannabis.

As mentioned, there are two pre-rolled joints, one called Bluebird Flower Pre-Roll Deep Roots Harvest Fortune Cookies, another called Tahoe Hydro OG Stix.

Bluebirds pre-roll

Don’t get excited. There’s no actual fortune cookie involved, but the Bluebird Flower Pre-Roll does have a fortune inside.

Probably the most appealing element of the sampler is the vape pen and Moxie vape cartridge.

Our only qualm with The Weekend Box was the lack of instructional material for the vape pen. Assembly and use might be old hat for those familiar with cannabis or vaping culture, but for the rest of us, it’s a head-scratcher at first.

Ultimately, you plug the vape pen into any USB port using a USB charger attachment (included). Once the pen is charged, you unscrew the USB plug part and replace it with the vape cartridge, as seen in the photo below, and trust us, we’re even more surprised than you are that it’s in focus.

Charge the pen, screw on the cartridge and you’re in business. Studies show 95% of THC is absorbed in the first few seconds of inhaling, so don’t bother with that breath-holding thing you’ve seen in movies.

Vape cartridges are great because there’s no smoke involved. This method of consumption is believed to help avoid smoke toxins, which is sweet, because toxins are a buzzkill.

It’s also worth mentioning vape pens are virtually odorless, so unlike with with smoking, you won’t disturb or annoy those nearby.

Finally, The Weekend Box contains a gram of actual doobage, also known as “flower.” There’s also a handy lighter and glass pipe.

While we’ve never smoked marijuana, if it helps people chill out, we’re for it.

The Weekend Box is an ingenious idea, bringing together diverse product manufacturers to give customers a range of options, all in one convenient, curated collection.

Each compartment of the box holds a fun new discovery. It makes the baffling world of cannabis accessible to newbies, but we trust would also satisfy the cravings of more worldly marijuana consumers.

It should be noted The Weekend Box can only be purchased in Nevada, and it can’t be shipped out-of-state because cannabis is federally illegal. The Weekend Box can be ordered online for pick-up, or can be purchased in a few dispensaries such as MMJ America, The Source or Oasis Cannabis.

The Weekend Box costs $199 (we have no affiliation with the company, nor do we receive any financial benefit from blogging about it), and the product line-up may change.

A big thanks goes out to the rad folks at The Weekend Box for letting us know this awesome cavalcade of weed exists, and for providing us with a sample, gratis.

      Thanks for your feedback Tommy, but it is important to note that if you purchased all of the items in the box individually you would spend over $300, so the aggregation saves consumers over $100.

        You could build that box for $120 in California. Of course you would have to know some people and you would spent 5 hours rounding it all up.

          Thanks for sharing Larry! Nevada is the most highly regulated cannabis ecosystem on the planet today. Every cannabis state has their own economic model, so pricing varies from California to Colorado to Washington. Our goal with the product was to save consumers money, offer a curated experience to make it easy for “new to regulated cannabis” consumers to try the best sellers in our state, and to educate them with our guide to safe consumption. The more consumers who have a positive experience, the higher the chance they will incorporate cannabis consumption into their lifestyle and the faster cannabis consumption will be normalized.

      From what little I know about all this, each of these would tend to go for $30-40, or more. I do think there’s value in having the selection “curated,” as a beginner would have no idea where to start or what to get.

    When you hit a groove, it’s not you; it’s the spirit world. The spirits whisper the ideas in your brain and prod you along. They’re the ones that are really happy.

    Come on Spirit world… 7 or 11 would be fine too.

      I has no idea this would happen but since the end of prohibition I’ve been partaking occasionally in very small doses. Surprisingly the arthritis in my hands is gone. It wasn’t severe but it did require prescription NSAIDs and sometimes I had to wear a brace to immobilize my thumbs when things got bad. But after about two weeks of smoking a small amount of flower once a day about 3 or 4 times a week I noticed my arthritis wasn’t barking at me anymore. When I brought this up with my ‘budtender’ he recommended strains high in Mercyne a canabinoid that is a powerful anti-inflammatory. So far it hasn’t come back.

          No more amazed than I. Totally was not expecting it. Should point out that this is purely my own anecdotal testimony. Your mileage may vary.

      Hi there! Cannavative Gummiez are ideal for pain management. The entire Cannavative line of products were developed for the medical marijuana market and their CBD gummies are some of the best on the market.

        I doubt you’re a medical professional and the words “medical marijuana market” are pretty meaningless. While I support marijuana legalization, it’s distressing to see people selling it acting as if they are doctors.

        1. Scott Roeben

          Krista isn’t claiming to be a medical professional, but she does seem knowledgeable about this topic (since she represents various entities in this realm). Medical marijuana is a thing, and it’s up to the individual to decide if there’s a medical benefit. I say try it and see if it helps.

  2. Kevin Rackley

    That looks like a “Weekend Box” for the entire crew. For one or even two people, seems like overkill. But the concept of obtaining multiple routes of administration is something I endorse wholeheartedly.

    1. Krista Whitley

      Thank you Kevin! Our goal was to create a box that was to be shared by groups, couples, bachelor parties, everyone coming to visit our fabulous city. I would definitely NOT recommend it for just one or two people unless they had a high tolerance or plenty of time.

  3. Autumn Davidson

    The weekend box is such an awesome, innovating product! Not only does it save you money but it saves you time trying to figure out what to get from the dispensary. It’s such a great sampling of products!

  4. Cannaseur

    Nevada is the 4th recreational market I’ve explored and this is definitely the first of its kind. Recreational seems to change the entire budtender interaction because it becomes about volume moving through stores so to see something that takes away the overwhelming amount of choices when walking into a new market where you aren’t familiar with what edibles or concentrate or flower is available I really appreciate.

  5. Celeste Cattanach

    The Weekend Box saves me time and money, so I can get back to my Vegas lifestyle with all my medicated needs exceeded ????????

  6. Dwayne Castellarin

    What a great way to spend the weekend. Get together with the guys and there’s something for everyone. I’ll take the cartridge and chocolate myself. Love the box.
